76
79
88

76 and 79 are strange transitional years, I really should pay more attention to 76, but just havent gotten into it because of all the shows that surround it. I guess I can kinda say the same for 88, cause I love 89 and 87 just never delved into 88

Lobster - Get the June 76 shows, they are special. All of them, imo.

Also, November 79.

My missing years are 83-86.

Very little 78.

Heavy on 71, 73, 76, 77, 79, 80, 89-91.

I hardly have any 68, 86-88, I could use some more 71 as well.

It's funny.
I have those areas you mention for both years but nothing beyond it. I really like the Cleveland public hall 79 show. I need beef up a bit more.

good question. fwiw I think 76 and 88 both offer a lot of great shows. So does 79 according to a lot of people but it's on my list.You HAVE to get 6-9-76, and the 7-29-88 is one of the best aud's you will ever find.

Here are mine:

79
82 ( which is probably top of my list to start expanding on )
83
84
85
86
87 ( great shows that year imo, have a bunch on cassette just haven't gone there as much for CD )
92
93
94
95

I'd say 92-95 is probably my least likely to seek out.

Caspers, check out 6/14/76 for a mindbending H>S>F. Also most of the fall of '79 is worth checking out, especially the shows in MA.

I also don't think I'll be delving into '92-'95 as much as the others in the near future, but then again part of what makes this so much fun is stepping outside my GD comfort zone.

Johnny, be sure to give the tapes from the end of July through August '82 a listen, they're all premium for sure.

I have only a hand full of 90 to the end....same with 85 on...but when I hear something from those years I like,I add it to my collection. Including my non-Dead,I know I have more than I will ever be able to get through even though I listen for 2 to 3 hours a day during my w/o`s.....But its hard to stop adding...everyday I hear something I just gotta have...just like a potato chip,you just cant have just one....

"The dreaded Vince era" was pretty good. I hope it doesn't get me run out of here, but guess it's obvious for me:

72-78: only 3-4 shows per year, depending (mostly DPs)
post 79: nothing (literally)

for me...
1967 (I like early era, but tend to stick to 68 & 69)
1971 (not a big fan except for the Dark Stars)
1976 (I honestly have no idea why)
1982 (Again, I don't know why)
1986 (not a fan of mid-80s up to 88, and nobody's tried to convince me to like this year yet)
1992 (not a big fan of 92-95, but some have given me tips for decent 93 and 94 shows, not as much for 92)
1995 (because it's too painful to listen to...with a couple of exceptions)

66-71-Im saving these years for my 40's (Im 29 now),I listen to a show here and there (LOVE the TC years!!!) but want to save the Primal Years for middle age...

Anything past 83 I just can't take...Jerry just gets too sloppy, Brent's and Vince's sound is too tingy, and the drumming started to really fall off in my opinion....So I have only 1 show past 83 and that is the 90 Branford show with Eyes and Birdsong...Maybe if I make it to my 80's I will listen to Post 83, but now is not the time...

I've been listening to shows since I was 13 (I was 16 when Jerry passed, never saw them with him), but the light switch did not turn on fully till my early 20's...So i have spent the last several years building up my collection from my fav years 72-79....These years have kept me super occupied....

Thats the great thing about this band, there are so many shades and colors of the music over the years to keep everyone happy no matter what year is your fav....

I have decent representation for most years up through the early Brent years. Then there's a gradual decline begining around '82 or '83, dwindling slowly until about 1990. After that, the pickings are scarce- only a handful from each year. Lord knows I've tried, but too much of the Vince era is just painful.

An apparent oddball for this site, I spend most of my time listening to what I term the "Ragged Glory" years from 84 to 95. Not sure why - I like the expanded song selection and the pathos in Garcia's voice.
Thus my underrepresented years are not characteristic:
65-66
73-74
78-83

I know others rave about 73 and 74 and I have listened to dozens of shows from this era but it just doesn't click for me. I know I'll get bashed for this but I would probably rather not hear a 45 minute Playin' and Donna's vocals during this era really grate on my nerves (I am ok with her later efforts in 76 and 77). I guess I tend to focus on the years during which I was actually seeing shows (the dreaded Vince era!).

Hey Swampy.....play the 73's skip the Playin'. The 73 shows are monsters, plenty of material, even if you skip the Feline Massacre.

I have that one one tape. I have limited exposure to 84 but my favorite has allways been 4-1-84. The thing about 84 that turns me off is the combination of the sound of Brent's keyboards and them being so prominant in the mix. Plus not only does pretty much the whole band sound a little run down ( imo ) but some of the mixes ( particularily vocals ) seem kinda weird to me.

And let me just go on record as saying I have NEVER been a fan of all the shenanigans Healy pulled with vocals in the mid 80's trying to make things more trippy or trying to pretend he was in the band or whatever motive he had.

I was all ready to give a listen and it won't play. Which brings me to a question. Does anyone else ever have shows that won't stream? Sometimes I'll go for one and it won't play at all then I'll go to another and it starts no problem

71- i have around 5 shows from 71 and they are great but for the most part this is my least favorite year outside of 92-95.

Other then that I listen to all the other years pretty much evenly.
